Every year, Neiman Marcus puts out a Christmas catalog that includes some ridiculously expensive gifts, and this year's edition came out yesterday. A bit risky in this climate, I'd say. Hopefully no one's going to go Occupy Neiman Marcus.
--Here are some of the most extravagant luxury presents they're offering up this Christmas . . .
--Dancing fountains. You know those fountains outside places like the Bellagio in Vegas that shoot water choreographed to music? For $1,000,000 you can have one installed in your backyard.
--International flower show tour. You and nine friends get flown on a private jet to flower shows all over Europe. It includes luxury hotels, gourmet meals, and it'll run you $420,000.
--Luxury yurt. It's a tent in your backyard that's designed to look like it's for an Arabian king. Plush couches, chandelier, all that. It starts at $75,000.
--Private Johnnie Walker Scotch tasting. For just $5,000, you can host 20 people at your house and try all the different Johnnie Walker labels. And everyone leaves with a $170 bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue. (--A $170 bottle of Scotch for 20 people would cost $3,400. This actually might be a good deal?!?)
--Designer ping-pong table made of black rubber. This will set you back $45,000.
--For what it's worth, in all of the item descriptions they make a HEAVY-HANDED POINT of mentioning how a portion of the purchase goes to charity.
